This work was created a year ago by the artist David Ross. He said it was a memorial and a reminder never to forget the day Floyd died.

George Floyd died on May 25, 2020 after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck when he was arrested. Chauvin has since been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison.

Floyd’s death sparked a call for racial equality and reform that continues to this day.
